Classes Taught:

    • Depaul2 Introduction to Biology (BIO 115) – Undergraduate: Deals with the scientific method, biological chemistry, structure, function, and heredity of cells and organisms, evolution and ecology for non-biology majors.
    • Marine Biology (BIO 118) – Undergraduate: examines the principles of oceanography with a general overview of the biology of marine organisms. A Study Abroad version of this course is coming soon (here’s a sneak peak).
    • General Biology III (BIO 193) – Undergraduate: Deals primarily with diversity and development within the plant and animal kingdoms including basic principles of physiology. Lecture-laboratory.
    • Animal Physiology (BIO 307) – Undergraduate: Functions and regulatory mechanisms of animal cells, organs and organ systems with special emphasis on physiological evolution. Lecture-Laboratory.
    • Advanced Comparative Physiology (BIO 352/452) – Undergraduate and Graduate: This course examines the physiological adaptations animals have to live in some of the worlds most challenging environments.  Topics include living in varying salinity, living in environments without oxygen, high altitude, diving physiology, freeze tolerance and avidance, torpor and hibernation.  Topics will be addressed using a lecture/discussion/seminar format.
    • Field Studies in Marine and Estuarine Biology (BIO 318) – Undergraduate: This course is designed for science majors with an interest in marine and estuarine biology and will examine this subject from an ecological perspective. The primary objectives of the course are: 1) to explore the diversity of marine and estuarine life; 2) to understand the manner in which physical and biological factors influence biological diversity in marine systems; 3) to understand the role that humans play in shaping these dynamics; and 4) to develop professional connections and gain real-life experiences in marine science.
